    Hi there, I am thinking to build a PBN but I am confused about the hosts. I want to save as much money as I can from hosting so that I can invest the money in buying expired domains? (eh, I have a limited budget)

    What do you think about hosting on blogger and other free web hosts? Is there any chance google will find out (assuming every other aspect of pbn is well setup).

    Most of those platforms will charge you if you want to use your own domain name with them. That’s normally a premium feature.

    Also if you are building a pbn and you try to cut corners you are wasting your time. Better looking at some other links, or reduce the size of your pbn. Because quality of everything is very important.

    No, blogger is free for hosting if you have your own domain name but they don't support wordpress that is the only disadvantage. But I think it will still be a problem if a large number of sites are hosted on the same host.

    If you can't afford hosting for a PBN, then I wouldn't recommend to go for a PBN, see other cheaper ways for backlinks and target easy keywords, most of the time you don't need a PBN for easy keywords at all, start with normal stuff like Web 2.0s and when you start earning go for the next level.

    Bro its not like that I have a "low" budget, I have a limited budget and I want to get most out of it. And free web hosts can do a great job hiding the footprints. so why not use them?

    Just set it up on Google Cloud. They'll give you $300 free trial credit and that'll last you like a year and a half.

    $300 credit lasted me 1.5 years running 10 PBN domains.

    I don't think it's safe to host all of the domains on the same host especially the one google owns. You may get penalized on a manual review. Don't you think?

    I honestly don't see the problem with free web hosts. Don't host all of them on free web hosts though. Just throw in a few if you have to. Only risk I see is downtime and being in the same neighborhood as a "bad" site. Downtime is about as good as those horrible $1/month hosting. Bad neighborhood, you'll run into for sure, but it's about the same as those $1 hosts too. Most free web hosts will require a premium to use your own domain though.

    Are you talking about subdomains (e.g., yourdomain.blogger.com)? Or a standalone domain (blogger.com)?

    A PBN built on a free blog subdomain (xxx.wordpress.com, xxx.weebly.com, etc.) is referred to as a web 2.0. They can be quite useful; usually not as strong as good PBNs on their own domains, but still good.

    for a pbn you try to get different ip´s ..... so you have a regular blogger link web 2.0 and a PBN blogger link ...its from the same ip ... which is not what you are aiming for. you could also put all your pbn on the same webpace to save money.

    Either build the PBN as it should be, or don't build it at all. If you are cutting corners from square one, then that PBN definitely won't last long.

    I am talking about standalone domain here, not a subdomain.

    ^ This.

    If you're building your own PBN, the goal is to build something that will last. If you need junk (e.g. for parasites or some blatantly spammy trash), it's way more efficient to buy it in bulk from some huge crappy network.

    If you want low-quality or churn-and-burn style PBNs, buy them in bulk from someone who specializes in selling that type of bulk junk. You can get those for extremely cheap on Fiverr and other similar sites.

    I will try to stay away or keep blogger at min. Blogger is part of google and i try to avoid using anything (youtube is an exception) which can leave footprints. There are other web 2.0 .
    Second point is i think using tumblr or other web 2.0 is totally fine but they must be part of your pbn not backbone. If all or 90% of your links are coming from free websites then it is a matter of time that you will be flagged. I am not an expert but doing several experiments. So far best results I get are when I try to copy characteristics of other authority websites. It is hard have an article about yourself on engadget or similar but it totally worths it.

    It worked for me man. I have 15 expired domains hosted on free blogs and most of them are hosted on blogger. I have so many niche articles. Its working. GO with it. Dont listen to anyone. Just do it now.
